To help realise its plans to expand its building materials portfolio in the United Arab Emirates, Arkan Building Materials Co contracted Sinoma International Engineering Co Ltd to construct its new Al Ain Cement Factory (ACF) at the Arkan Industrial Park in Al Ain, UAE. Satisfied with the completed plant, the cement producer also subsequently awarded the China-based firm with the operations contract. By Overseas Development Branch of Sinoma International Engineering Co Ltd (formerly known as CBMEC and Sinoma E&E), China.
As one of the largest cement factories in the world with Sinoma full proprietary intellectual property rights, ACF has a clinker capacity of 11,000tpd and is capable of producing up to 4.5Mta of cement. Sinomas scope of supply ranged from raw materials to cement distribution and covered engineering design, equipment supply, construction and commissioning of theworks.
The new line was the second 10,000tpd production facility to be built by Sinoma International Engineering Co Ltd after its first successful commissioning of Union Cements 10,000tpd line, UAE, in 2005.

We start with the best people, engineering expertise and over a century of knowledge and know-how of electrification and process control in cement production. Our team then provides integrated products, services and solutions to help customers in the cement industry optimize their power and productivity resulting in increased availability and lower lifetime investment costs.
ABBs new permanent magnet (PM) motors for medium-power gearless conveyor drives (GCDs) reduce production costs and increase competitiveness. A PM motor, combined with gearless technology, also fulfills eco-design requirements, saves energy, reduces failure rates and lowers maintenance overheads.
ABBs Advanced Process Control and Analytics Suite comprises tools, online and offline, to deploy advanced controllers and analytic models; this gives process and power industries monitoring, predictive analytics and closed-loop control abilities at the device, edge and cloud and ensures real-time operation efficiency gains.
A leading U.S. cement companys immediate response to general maintenance is to perform it in-house rather than turn to a service provider. However, the North American supplier of aggregates and building materials did not yet know the analyzers in its Texas, USA plant were becoming obsolete.
Authorized Distributors of Pruftechnik, Germany condition monitoring products like on line and offline vibration meters and analyzers, wear scanners. We also provide Predictive maintenance consultancy services, Laser alignment services etc.
The performance of the GCC cement sector improved significantly in 2019 when compared with the previous year as higher domestic consumption combined with increased export demand. For 2020, the outlook remains equally promising, supported by expansionary budgets and the normalisation of relations between GCC countries.
GCC cement sector fortunes fared relatively better in 2019 compared to 2018. A revival of export fronts and improved local demand resulted in higher profitability last year. For 2020 U-Capital expects the improved outlook and sentiment to continue on the back of expansionary budget announcements, the normalisation of relations between GCC countries, reconstruction in war-inflicted neighbours (mainly Yemen and Syria), an oil price expectation of US$65/bbl, the announcement of affordable housing for nationals, expansion plans by various local and international developers as well as the development of new economic cities and free zones.

This article reports a case study of the application of FMECA and FTA methods to inform the design of effective maintenance program for a waste heat recovery power plant in the hot arid climate of the United Arab Emirates. It illustrates the strengths and weaknesses of these approaches through a case study report of a live plant in a cement factory. The article highlights the implications and importance of plant-specific contextual factors in conducting quality FMECA and FTA.
